Mnndny Mamlng, Aifiit 9, 1859.
j-y Penoa* Abroad from the city en hare the
Dispatch tent to them for inj period of time they
may desire, by leaving their order* and paying die
eaab for the lime (peel tod.
It it * fact which every one mud have ob
served, that all mysteries which have never been
satisfactorily explained, are perpetually recur
ring to the minds of men for elucidation. Thus
it is tliat the authorship of Junius —a question
which has not the remotest bearing upon the
present condition of mankind —is made the sub
ject of unceasing and curious investigation.—
Sir David Brewster, devoted his leisure mo
ments during thirty years of his life, to rhis
subtle inquiry. Other philosophers, less re
nowned than he, have addressed themselves to
the vexed question of "Who bit Billy Patter,
son ?" and thousands of inquisitive intellects
have been turned to the unhappy fate of Milly
Macpherson. It will not be thought strange,
therefore, that after the lapse of some months
the dark and doubtful query which stands at
the head oi this article, should have come back
again to puzzle and perplex the brains of the
McDonald is himself responsible to some
extent, for this re-opening of the painful matter
connected with his name. We had hoped we
were done with McDonald. We had ventured
to cherish the belief, that until the meeting of
the Legislature, in November next, we should
not again be compelled to direct our gaze into
that opaque cloud of "historic doubts" which
hangs around the affair of the kicking. Truth to
say, McDonald had become a bore. We were
ourselves, sick, for a time, of perpetual Mc-
Donald. Our readers, too, began to tire of his
martyrdom and devoted McDonald to the infer
nal gods. And when he went back to the
bosoms of his confiding constituency, we be
lieve no tear was shed over his departure. But
M-Donald has "turned up" once more to the
public observation, and, like some unhappy
goblin, appears "before his time," to affright
It will be recollected that our worthy Chief
Magistrate, in the fulness of his gratitude lor
McDonald's sufferings in (he be
half, appointed him a Visitor of the Uni
versity of Virginia. Albeit not remarkable for
elegant scholarship, the new appointee went to
Charlottesville in the discharge of the duties
ol the visitation, where he flourished as a pa
tron of letters and a guardian of learning.—
On his arrival at home, he felt that something
was due to the sagacious Governor who had
elevated him to so distinguished a posit on —
Accordingly he gets up a meeting of the De
mocracy of his county, (of which we have re
ceived the proceedings in the Monongalia Mir
ror.) and pushes through a set of resolutions,
in which it is declared that Gov. Johnson was
right in commu'ing the sentence of Jordan
Hatcher, and in the reasons he as-igned for it,
that an "infuriate mob" assaulted the Gover
nor's house, and threatened the lives of its in
mates, and that Richmond is a "Free Soil
city" of the very worst stamp and character.
Vice McDonald! A has Richmond!
Now the Dispatch hus nothing to do with
politics) and cannot therefore comment upon
Jhe endoisement of the Jordan Hatcher busi
ness by a Democratic meeting. As a champion
of the honor of the city, however, it feels itselt
bound to remind McDonald that although the
most pushing investigation was made befoie
the Grand Jury and the Joint Committee of
both Houses, no evidence of anything beyond
a merely noisy gathering was elicited, and tha»
the ouly "infuriate mob" of which any ac
count could be obtained, consisted of op.e sin
gle individual, who did, it seems, with Porce and'
arms, <being thereto instigated by the devil,
agaftist the peatfc and dignity of the Common
wealth and the statute in such case made and
provided, proceed to kick (violenterpedcm im
posuit) the said McOonald, and trestt his per
son otherwise wiA disrespect. That this "in-
mob" was no joke, we are willing te
believe upof'the testimony erf McDonald him
self, who made off from it—
"Lifr.e one that on a kmesome road,
"Doth wnlk in few "and dread,
And having one* turned romi ij'Wufcl on,
And turns n-e'more his head;
Because he taows a trighliul tieud
Doth clise behind hiin tread."
But admitting the "infuriate mob," it is a
non sequitur, of which we should not have
suspected even the illogical mind of our
fiiend, McDonald, to say that in conse
quence Richmond is a Free Soil City.—
For what purpose was this mob (if mob there
was) gotten up? What was the occasion of
it? Every body knows that the excitement in
the public mind at that time was awakened
by the misjudged clemency of the Governor
in rescuing from death a sluve who had mur
dered his master. If it had been a Free Soil
or anti-Slavery agitation, the "infuriate mob"
would, it seems to us, have only waited on his
Excellency to thauk him lor his conduct, re
serving all its indignation and fury for the Couit
< which condemned the negro to die.
But we feel ashamed of ourselves for entering
into anything like an argument with McDonald.
Such exertion of our faculties, we are assur
ed, would soon deprive us of reason, and we
turn, therefore, to the momentous interrogato
ry—"Who kicked MeDouald? " Can not the
whole thing now be cleared up ? Where's the
individual ? We have an especial reason for
wishing to know him. We desire to raise a
•tatue to commemorate his achievement.—
Surely he deserves the honors of sculpture
more than if he had taken a city. As soon as
hia identity can be established, we shall open
a subscription list at the office of the Dispatch
for this fitting testimonial. The artistic effect
of such a work might be made very imposing.
The great unknown should be represented in
marble, in the act of kicking McDonald in na
tive brass. Such a design, wrought out with
skill, and erected upon the memorable spot
where the affair occuired, would, in after times,
divide the admiration of the eognoteetUi with
the elaborate and magnificent monument of
OwwspsaliMs sf tfco Dlsyattfe.

Nhmu. Eoitom:—The lm protracted
examination of the Rand brothers, charged
with robbing a branch of the Bank of Virginia
at this place, con* to a close in the exaatWiinf
CoOrt before Mayor White. Friday. Th« tes
timony offered bv the Commonwealth and ton
defence, differ very little from that given in bo
fore Mayor Lambert. The cue wm •übm.ited
without argument, and the Mayor decided that
be should releaae Abraham W. Rand, but could
not, conscientiously, set John W.Rand at lib
erty, and he was remsnded to jail to await o
hearing before the Hustings Court. This deci
sion of the Mayor met with the umveranl ap
proval of the citizens of this place.
The weather is very warm here, and buai
ness is slmost at a stand.

Medical College in Savannah.—The
Savannah Daily News, of the 4th inst., men
tions that at the late term of the Inferior Court
of that county, Dr. R D. Arnold, P. M. Rol
loch, W. G. Bulloch, C. W. West, H L- Bird,
E. H. Martin, J. G. Howard, and J. R. Reid,
were incorporated for the purpose of establish
ing a Medical School in ihat city, to be known
as the Savannah Medical Institution, and that
two lots, for the location of the necessary col£
lege buildings had been already purchased by
these gentlemen, and thai in a few days con
tracts will be entered into for their erection.—
Such institutions at the South are calculated
to modify materially the reputation and influ
ence of Northern scbools, hitherto exerting so
great a control in the dependence occasioned
by our waul of similar advantages.
Ikfamocs Outrage.—From the Staunton
Spectator we gather the following particulars
of an outrage, (before noticed,) in Augusta
"A negro man, belonging to James A. Fra
zier, Esq , near Jennings' Gap, was commit
ted to the jail of this county on Monday last,
charged with the pei petration of an infamous
outrage upon the person ot a respectable young
white teumle. We understand that the evi
dence against him is conclusive. The unfor
tunate woman identifies him distinctly, and
states that he had in his possession a pistol
and threatened to shoot her if she resisted.—
She did resist, but was overcome by the vil
lain, who is said to be a very powerful man.—
The deed was perpetrated on Sunday, during
the absence ol the father and a portion of the
family at Church. The young woman had
strolled into the orchard for the purpose of ga
thering fruit, where she was met and assaulted
by the black ruffian.
"Theseare the rumored particulars of one
of the most daring outrages ever committed in
our county."
By and with advice and consent of Senate.

The powder mag zineon Vine st. Hill, Cin
cinnati, was attacked a few evenings since, by
a mob ol not less than one hundred men, who
broke open the door, then entered and carried
to a large pond near by, and threw in upward
of 700 kegs of powder. The mob then return
ed to the building, did considerable damage to
the inside, and left. The powder was valued
at near §4,000. The b) this mob violence
will not be less than one half. Cause—the
failure of the authorities to remove the depot,
which was believed to be dangerous to the
lives of the citizens,
The steamboat Diamond, oil her ft&y up
trom Niagara Fulls, on the 28th alt., struck a
rock in the channel between the head of Navy
and Grand Islands, and knocked a hole in her
bottom. She settled so fust that there was
hardly time to run her oa to Grand Island,
when she sank in about seven feet of water. —
She hud but few passettgers on board, who
were taken r ofl by the steamer Clinton.
No less than thirty-six men connected with
Barnum's Menagerie were arrested and caged
on the other side of the river, night before last,
for maltreating a landlord and thrashing a reg
iment of his friends. From wnat we have
heard, we think the landlord is to blame in
attempting to impose upon Barnum's agent. —
Detroit Press, Monday.
A young man by the name of Lopez, book
keeper and confidential clerk in the house of
Nttrth &. Scott, shoedeitlers at St. Louis, was
arrestedon the 28th ult., for embezzling
'800 from his employers. He had been in the
habit of frequeting the gambling hells of that
city, and this was the result.
Treasure in New Jersey.—The Sit Holly
Minor tells an almost incredible story that
some of Capt. Kidd's treasure hus betn found
among the Pines, and that the occupants of that
region are in a stale of intense excitement. A
man dreamed lor several nights successively
that he should find this trensure, the pluce to
be indicated by four iron bars projecting from
the earth He went and found his dream leal
ized. Two hundred and forty thousand dol
lars had been discovered up to Monday night,
buried in iron chests, and the people have
turned out with their pickaxes in further seurch
1 for the treasure.
From Gcatamala.—Advices under date of
14th June, received in Boston, in relation to the
cochineal crop, state that it has been nearly
destroyed. The quautity secured is about
3,0(10 bales against 1 J,OOO lust year; and many
vessels have bee obliged to leave the coast
without being able to secure a cargo.

Tn Puwim or Aomuai Gold.—
Tbrough the politcMM of tbe A May era of A*
ounce* in weight, which bin been imported,
from London, by the Mist, for the purpoee of
(eating ita character. Aa it wtt expressly writ
ten for, (be probability ia, that these are the
firat apeeimena of the fold production of Ana
tralia which have ever been aeen in thia coun
try. It waa received only yeaterday at the
Mint, and an aaaay of part of it givea a reault
of 966 lOOOths fine, which ia equal to about
$20 per os. Thia valuation ia, however, upon
the metal after melting, for which an allow
ance of two or three percent, muat be made,
making the value of the native grains about
$19.60; which was the prhe charged in Lon
don for this lot. Previous assays, in London,
of other parcels, are reported to have given
the result of 638 lOOOths fine. On the whole,
it is presumable that Ausiralian gold is better
than Californian (that is, containing less silver)
by six or seven percent, on the average. There
is a remarkable similarity in the physical or
external character of the gold from the two
great mining regions, occurring both in flat
spangles and in amorphous lumps.

It is no use talking about taxes on dogs. The
revenue don't compensate for the loss of sleep.
Neither do the dog-catchers diminish the evil to any

dogs enough to make a pyramid. Neither would

Mr. Ptrdu'a little boy. The attempt proved unsuc

S. From the evidence, it appearing that the com
plainant was nearly as deep in the mud as Mrs. P.
was in the mire, the Mayor adjudicated the case
by binding Mrs. P. over in the sum of $100 and
Miss Smith in the sum of $200 to keep the peace.

To Dr. J. S. Rose, Philadelphia—Dear Sir: For
the sake of humanity, I write these few lines to in
form you and the public generally, of the great
cure your Dyspeptic Compound has made on me
In the summer of 1850, I was a.tacked with a vio
lent diarrhoea, and after trying the remedies pre
scribed by two or three eminent physicians for 18
month;, without any effect, and being reduced al
most to a skeleton, and scarcely able to walk across
my room, 1 accidentally received one of your cir
culars, in which I found my disease exactly de
scribed. My son went to Petersburg and purchas
ed a buttle of the DYSPEPTIC COMPOUND, with
a bos. af your FAMILY or ALTERATIVEiPILLS,
and to my great astonishment and satisfaction, I
found gr.eat relief in a few days; and in two weuks
I was entirely well. At this time I am in better
health tHan i have been in ten or twelve yean. In
short, sir, your medicine saved my life.
Your, with respect, ;GEO. J. JONES.
